TESTING YOUR EYES FOR MORE THAN JUST VISION


Everybody would love to enjoy perfect vision, and thanks to the rapid advances in eye care, just about anybody can if they receive the right treatment. It's common for our vision to deteriorate as we age even if we never had problems when we were young, but all it takes is an OCT scan to find out precisely what's affecting your vision. Our highly trained and fully qualified staff can read the OCT test results accurately to prescribe the most effective form of treatment for you particular situation.

An OCT scan in Berkhamsted can detect eye and health conditions in their early stages, allowing you to take preventative measures to keep your vision intact. Learn more about the OCT exam by calling our professionals.

The OCT can detect signs of disease much earlier than would otherwise be possible. This technology uses light waves in a process similar to ultrasound to test for retinal conditions. During the scan, nothing touches your eye and the process is completely painless.

We are ideally located to offer quality eye care which includes retinal imaging for customers in Berkhamsted and the surrounding areas in Hertfordshire.

WHY HAVING AN OCT TEST IN BERKHAMSTED IS SO BENEFICIAL


Most eye-related conditions can be stopped in their tracks or treated effectively if they're caught early enough, but some conditions are almost impossible to detect in their early stages without the use of specialist diagnostics equipment. Using state-of-the-art Topcon 3D technology, we can identify conditions such as:
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Macular Holes
  • Diabetes
  • Vitreous Detachment
All the conditions listed above can lead to severe vision impairment if left to exacerbate, so if you want to catch them before they adversely affect your quality of life, you should consider booking an OCT eye test in Berkhamsted. 
Our professionals are more than happy to talk you through the procedure over the phone as well as explain some of the symptoms that suggest you may benefit from an OCT eye test. Even though we're based in Berkhamsted, we’ve been trusted by patients from all over the United Kingdom, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to know more about the advantages of our advanced OCT eye examination.

WHAT CAN THE OCT SCAN CHECK FOR?
The OCT test is a comprehensive retinal scan that can highlight various conditions before they may seriously affect your vision. Amongst others, it can detect:

  • GLAUCOMA
    Glaucoma is a serious condition that can severely corrupt your vision. It damages the optic nerve at the point where it leaves the eye, often causing undetectable harm.


  • AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION
    The most common cause of vision loss in the over-fifties, age-related macular degeneration causes the gradual breakdown of the central area of the retina.

  • DIABETES
    With more than two million adult sufferers in the UK alone, diabetes is a major cause for concern. Don’t let it affect you or your family and book an OCT scan today. We can pick up on early signs of diabetes, making treatment likely to be easier and more effective.
  • MACULAR HOLES
    Vision can be seriously affected by small holes in the retina- otherwise known as ‘macular holes’- causing the corruption of detailed vision and even the loss of vision itself.

  • VITREOUS DETACHMENT
    Vitreous detachment occurs when the ‘jelly’ inside our eyeball disconnects from the back of the eye and moves towards the centre, damaging the eye. Sometimes it doesn’t detach, but pulls against the retinal surface instead. This strain can cause serious harm to your vision, even creating a hole in the retina itself.
